A note from Barb Geiger on behalf of the New Branches Property Team

Thank you for all your efforts at out NB Earth Day cleanup! We really knocked it out of the park!

Highlights of our day:

  • Removed vines from the east side of the school building
  • Removed vines from the courtyard fence
  • Trimmed the scrub tree in the courtyard (Larry and Lana, thanks for tackling this earlier in the week)
  • Cleared the courtyard of leaves, branches, grit and other debris
  • Removed broken tree limbs all over the property
  • Removed many bags of leaves stashed by the garage (late fall raking)
  • Fixed the rock garden in the courtyard

This checked off a number of our priorities for 2023!

A big thanks to Ginny Rudloff for the delicious meal and hospitality!
